Sorry ... I don't think the submitter gets to choose or even needs to know 
what ID we choose for their submission within our collection, or how we use 
it.  I think we needn't mention internal processes in the external policy 
document for fear of locking out our opportunity to make changes.

I'm talking about the test collection, not individual tests.

I want to encourage submitters to use unique IDs for their individual 
tests, though David's evidence that we cannot rely on this means they 
needn't follow it.  We will make individual tests unique by incorporating 
the subdirectory in the unique identifiers.  But, if we encourage 
uniqueness, our end users will have an easier time distinguishing the tests 
by their simple name.

If we don't say in our policy document what we do with information, just 
state the constraints we need or practices we desire, we will have the most

But further to my point above, should we just remove it?

I can see both a "yes" and "no" answer.  It would be nice to keep things 
together, but do we limit flexibility?  However, since our logistics will 
change more often then our policies, could you please introduce a third 
document which is a Submission Manual and refer to it from the Submission 

Thanks, Cris,
